(September 2010) PIMMON is arguably Australia’s most well known and most successful experimental music producers, having recorded for various labels around the world (including Tigerbeat6 and Fat Cat) and collaborating with the likes of FENNESZ, OREN AMBARCHI and more recently with Jeff Burch, formerly of SONGS.
Over the last eighteen months, PIMMON has released five albums of new material, from 2009’s ‘Smudge Another Yesterday’ to his forthcoming split cassette on Spanish Magic, which comes backed with one of his earliest recordings from 1983 under the name YCLEPT DINMAKERS.
In this New Weird Australia podcast, he talks to Stu Buchanan about whether this productive patch actually means anything, whether his early 80s material is really worth a listen, and whether any of the so-called chillwave cassette bands actually sound any good with the hiss removed.
